It,s that quiet , between season lull on daffnett, a good time to explain and if possible illustrate a few daffodil names.
Two that have always intrigued me are both classic show flowers that should be in all serious exhibitors collections.
Altun Ha — John Pearson 1987.
An all time great flower.
I understand its from Johns time in the British military . Central America .An ancient ruins.
Is it a current tourist destination or from the distant past ?
A very different name and I would love to here the full story.
Any word that beats spell – check by a mile , must have a tale to tell.
Gay Kybo — Richardson — 1980.
Easily the best of the many fine Richardson doubles.
Daffseek tells us it is proving to be a useful parent.
There is no Kybo in my dictionary.
How the changed meaning of one word — GAY — can change since 1980
What is a — happy , cheerful ,carefree and merry ,— KYBO.
I,ll sleep much better when you provide the answers.
